An MSWMM file is a project file created by Windows Movie Maker containing
details of which clips/files/images/transitions/videos/audios are in the
project. It contains NO information that can be viewed on another PC since
the original content is not included, just the details.
Your nephew needs to use the Save to My Computer option and save the
completed project, then email you that file or burn it to CD or DVD and mail
that to you.
